Amidst a sea of '90s inspired slip dresses and the season's hero skirts is a wave of ulta-flattering, drop-hem, fit-and-flare frocks. Consider it the cousin of the trumpet skirt. The flapper-esque trend is being heralded in by the big guns — from Stella McCartney and Peter Pilotto to fast-fashion chains. Plus, the fit-and-flare silhouette is eagerly supported by street style stars and celebrities alike (we're talking Olivia Wilde to Georgia May Jagger).
Nipping you in at the waist and flaring out from the hips, this undeniably flattering fashion trend is one we're pretty eager to try out. Equally excited? Shop our top ten picks inside the gallery.

Glee's leading ladies glammed up to celebrate creator Ryan Murphy's PaleyFest Icon Award last night. The LA event wasn't just an opportunity for a cast reunion; it also set the stage for something of a style face-off between Naya Rivera, Lea Michele, and Jayma Mays, who each brought her own brand of cocktail chic to the red carpet. Lea showed her affinity for sexier cuts in a sheer black Vivienne Tam dress with a lacy peekaboo effect, and finished it off with a pair of equally sexy ankle-strap evening sandals. Naya made a polished arrival in a peplum-trimmed navy top, then balanced the flared look with a slim, printed pencil skirt and completed the look with lace-up sandals, a Diane von Furstenberg clutch in hand, and a bright red lip. As for Jayma, she showed off a bright style in a formfitting, collared Paper London shirtdress with a bold, colour-blocked effect, then tempered the look with a pair of classic nude pumps. Each of the ladies brought a unique play on the "party dress." Now we're asking you to pick your favourite. Which look gets your vote?
